Fordham Community Prepares for the 10th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

At the close of each academic year, Fordham University recognizes the hard work, originality, and collaboration of its students at the Undergraduate Research Symposium. This year marks the 10th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, which will be presented on Wednesday, April 26.

Consisting of over forty oral presentations and over one hundred poster presentations, the 2017 Undergraduate Research Symposium will be a chance for students to showcase the work they have completed over the course of the year. A diverse set of disciplines will be represented, with students exhibiting scholarship across a wide array of interests, majors, and class years. The various presentations showcase original research conducted by students under the mentorship of a faculty member.

The events of the symposium will take place on the second floor of the McGinley Center with oral presentations occurring from 12-3pm and a poster session from 3-5pm. All are welcome to attend and learn about the ongoing scholarship being conducted on campus.

Also during the Research Symposium, the Fordham Undergraduate Research Journal (FURJ) will be issuing Volume VII of its publication. Copies of the journal will be distributed throughout the day in McGinley, but will also be available in the Dean’s Offices at the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses, as well as online at the FURJ website.

Fordham University and FURJ look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of the students and sparking interest and dialogue between students, faculty, and the community.
